Facial gymnastics and its history
Facial gymnastics is an activity that consists in toning the muscles of the face through specific exercises. This practice is increasingly popular among those looking for a way to maintain a youthful and radiant appearance without having to resort to invasive or expensive procedures. In this article, we’ll explore the origins of facial gymnastics, its multiple functions, how to do it, and how to use Liola’s Cosmetics products for best results.
Facial gymnastics originated in China and Japan, where it was considered a traditional practice to maintain youthful, glowing skin. Over time, this practice has spread all over the world, becoming an important part of beauty routines. Today, many people include facial exercise in their daily routine, either as a way to maintain a youthful appearance, or to relax facial muscles and reduce stress. Facial exercise has many important functions.
For example, it helps strengthen facial muscles by improving circulation and stimulating collagen production. This helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, and maintain youthful, glowing skin. In addition, facial exercise also helps reduce tension and stress, which can cause wrinkles and fine lines to appear on the face.
To start practicing facial gymnastics, it is important to use the right products. For example, Liola’s Cosmetics offers a range of cosmetics specifically formulated for facial gymnastics, such as the LIGHT face cream, the specific Black Diamond eye contour serum, which helps reduce the appearance of dark circles and bags under the eyes, which hydrates and nourishes the skin.
To get the most out of facial gymnastics, it is important to follow a regular and consistent routine. You can find many facial gym routines online, and some of them can be done at home without the help of specific products. However, for best results, we recommend using Liola’s Cosmetics products.
An example of a facial gym routine
Here is a possible anti-aging facial gym routine:
Gently massage the eye area with Liola’s Cosmetics Black Diamond Eye Serum, which helps reduce the appearance of dark circles and bags under the eyes and nourishes the skin.
Spread a small amount of Liola’s Cosmetics LIGHT face cream on your fingers and apply it on the face, avoiding the eye area.
Start your facial gymnastics with the forehead wrinkle exercise: raise your eyebrows as high as possible, keeping your eyes closed, and then slowly release. Repeat 10 times.
Continue with the smile exercise: spread your lips into as big a smile as possible, keeping your eyes open and relaxed, and then slowly release. Repeat 10 times.
Do the cheek exercise: Fill your cheeks with air, keeping your lips closed, and then slowly release the air. Repeat 10 times.
With the help of your fingers, gently massage the cheeks and temples, stimulating blood circulation.
With your fingers, apply light pressure on the wrinkles around the lips to stimulate collagen production.
With the help of a massage roller or a gua-sha, gently massage the face, starting from the chin area and going up towards the temples, to favor the drainage of liquids and reduce the appearance of puffiness and bags under the eyes.
Finish the routine by re-applying Liola’s Cosmetics LIGHT face cream on the face.
Remember that it is important to perform facial gymnastics regularly to achieve lasting results.
